5 YOGA POSES THAT MAY STRENGTHEN YOUR BACK

Numerous studies have shown the power of the ancient practice, which emphasizes stretching, strength, and flexibility, to relieve back soreness and improve function. It may greatly benefit from certain postures that can help lengthen your spine, stretch and strengthen your muscles, and return your back to its proper alignment. 
Yoga’s focus on balance and steadiness encourages your body to develop defenses against the causes of back pain, which include weak abdominal and pelvic muscles, as well lack of flexibility in the hips. When you strengthen these muscles, you improve your posture, which reduces the load on your back, and thus reduces the aches you feel. In addition, stretching can increase flexibility by increasing blood flow to tight muscles.

 

Here are 5 Poses to help you stretch and strengthen, but first it is a good idea to check with your doctor to get the green light. 

1. Downward Facing Dog
2. Childs Pose - Elongates Your Back and Relieves Stress
3. Pigeon Pose - relaxes the hips
4. Triangle Pose - lengthens Torso Muscles to Build Strength
5. Upward-Facing Dog Stretches and Engages Key Muscles
